    Derek Minor has earned the title of veteran in the game not only as a rapper but also as a producer and entrepreneur. After a decade of making music, the award-winning artist has established himself as a leading voice of hope in the midst of darkness. 

    “I want people to know someone’s watching and someone hears your hurts and someone hears your pains,” he shares. “Whether it’s wars that we’re fighting overseas or whether it’s women that are fighting for equality, I want people to know that there are not just artists that feel like you’re an album sale. But for me as an artist, I want to tell the stories of people that rarely get a voice and rarely get heard. Since people are listening to me for however long they’re listening, I’m not just gonna talk about how good I am, but I’m also gonna talk about how I can lend my platform to help others.”

    Among his achievements include a Gold plaque for producing Lecrae’s “Dirty Water” off the 2014 album, Anomaly, and a Grammy for his production work on Lecrae’s 2012 album, Gravity.

    Derek Minor has also had commercial success with his own music, twice placing on the Billboard 200 chart and reaching the #5 position on the Top Rap Albums chart with 2016’s Reflection. He has been the voice behind some of America’s most hyped sports moments of the time as his music has been featured by the Los Angeles Chargers, Los Angeles Rams,  Philadelphia Eagles, and, most recently, by ESPN “Faces of Free Agency” campaign that anticipated major moves from NBA superstars Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Kemba Walker.

    In 2009, he founded Reflection Music Group with producer and former Syndicated Mix Show host Doc Watson, which boasts a full-fledged label and marketing service, RMG Amplify. This is one of Minor’s greatest accomplishments as he now passes the baton to his roster of artists who are fresh voices of triumph.
